With the donnations received during January, February and March 2015, two children continued their treatment for three more months. Isabela returned with many problems in her mouth. She received important treatment to improve her poor oral health conditions. She was very brave and allowed that all the required resins, exodontias and crowns were practiced. Now her smile looks very healthy and she is ready to start her orthodontic treatment. Meanwhile she is enjoying her newborn brother.
Tatiana is actually 11 years old and she is receiving dental treatment with appliances which are preparing her for a new surgery in which a bone graft will be put in her gum, so that her teeth have a good support to avoid loosing them. She is under difficult familiar situations and is requiring the support of your donnations so that she doesn´t abandon her treatment.
The other children: Juan Sebastian, for being the youngest one, is in a stage in which he only requires support for his adequate development to be prepared to enter school in the same conditions other children do. Laura, Juan David and Nicol are attending on timely basis to all their dentist, speech therapy and psychogy treatment sessions. Maria Angelica and Juan David, who live far from Bogota, are actually receiving virtual speech threrapy taking advantage of the technological resources nowadays.
Thanks for your donnations and we hope many others join this effort.
With donations received during this period (September-December 2014), 4 children continued their integral treatment for two more months. Juan continued to attend speech therapy sessions showing a very good improvement in his language skills; actually he is a good conversationalist, well integrated to his socialization activities and without pronunciation difficulties. Laura has also attended to her speech therapy sessions to improve her articulation and psychology therapy because she is experiencing some integration problems at school due to teasing by their classmates for which strengthening of her self-esteem is necessary and preparing her for handling this situation; she continues with her dentistry treatment. Neitan initiated treatment with dental orthopedic appliances in order to prepare him for the next nose surgery, for which he needs a “nasal shaper”. Juan D is becoming familiar with a new environment because, together with his family, moved to another town. This type of changes is difficult for them to handle, therefore psychology therapies are very important at this time, for his adaptation. Additional to this, he has had some inconveniences with his dental appliances and various repairs have been necessary, which have interfered with his treatment´s normal course.
Fisulab celebrated 2014 year end with their children, which was possible thanks to several benefactors´ donations, which allowed us to offer some refreshments, gifts, recreation and have an integration journey together with their families.
Enclosed you will find a PDF report with a general report of activities carried out by Fisulab during 2014.
With the donations received during this quarter (June-August), the benefited children continued to attend their treatment: Juan Sebastian has showed a good improvement in his language and social abilities as a result of attending to prevention groups for the most little ones. Stefanny and Maria Angelica continue their speech therapy treatment, notwithstanding, as mentioned in previous opportunities, the distance where they live is very far from Fisulab, which doesn´t allow them to attend with the expected periodicity. To overcome this difficulty, Maria Angelica will start the remote speech therapy through internet; project which has been developed during this year with some other patients. Her family made an effort to buy a computer, making it possible to emphasize her treatment by this mean. Juan David ended his dentistry treatment whose main objective was to prepare him for alveolar bone grafts, being now ready for this surgery. Both Juan Davids, Laura and Neitan were given a recognition for being some of the more compromised children with their treatment.
Thanks for your generosity, we keep on counting with your permanent support to continue full children´s lives with smiles.
Fisulab wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Children benefited by your donations, continued attending psychology therapies in order to work their self-esteem and social skills with other children. Some of them have mockery problems at school and psychology works focused on their feelings to this respect.
During this period, Juan David, Neitan and Maria Angelica pull ahead with their attendance, considering they have particular difficulties with school adjustment. Juan Sebastian, like all other 3-year old children, attended once a month along with his family to learn about nurture and stimulation patterns, that have to be adopted by his parents at home in order to strengthen, since little, his development and self-esteem. Also attended very assiduously to psychology, Mariana, but in this case in order to be well prepared to her new surgeries she was realized during this period.
A second journey was realized with all children called “Dream Workshop”, moment which allows them to express feelings and opinions about how they see themselves in the future.
Also, Juan David and Laura, attended to their otolaryngology controls who are facing special difficulties to that respect.
Stefanny and Angelica are making progress, even though in a very slow way, in their speech. Both of them have important difficulties which will require a more frequent attention but it delayed because they place they live is very far from Fisulab.
With the resources received during this period, Fisulab has been able to continue priorizing the treatment for the 5 selected children during three more months.
Two of them have been continuously working during the former period: Juan David, has continued to attend on regular basis to his dentistry controls and speech therapies obtaining great advances in his language despite it is only once-a-month, because his home is very far from Bogota; also, Juan Sebastian, who already initiated speech therapy on individual basis to strengthen himself.
Estefany and Cristian have also been attending to speech therapies noticing an improvement in his language; however, Cristian was practiced a nasopharyngoscopy as well as Juan David in which a speech problem was evidenced to being caused by an organic component, which requires a new surgery for both of them.
The five of them have attended dutifully to their pediatric dentistry controls for the monitoring of their interceptive orthodontics; additionally, Juan David received dental care treatment because he had oral health problems.
During 2013, thanks to you and all our benefactors Fisulab provided treatment to 532 patients throughout the year.
